Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.28.20)

"About 9 seconds after drop, something malfunctioned, causing the booster stage engine to extinguish, which in turn ended the mission. We cannot yet say conclusively what the malfunction was or what caused it, but we feel confident we have sufficient data to determine that as we continue through the rigorous investigation we’ve already begun. With the engine extinguished, the vehicle was no longer able to maintain controlled flight — but the rocket did not explode. It stayed within the predicted downrange corridors of our projections and our Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) launch license as the vehicle fell to the ocean, posing no risk to public safety, no danger our aircrew or aircraft, and no significant environmental impact." Source: From a surprisingly transparent report from Virgin Orbit, explaining some of the items that they have uncovered since their unsuccessful Monday airborne 'LauncherOne' rocket launch attempt.

FAA Restricts Airspace (Of Course...) for Upcoming Demo-2 Space Flight

FAA Has Issued Multiple NOTAMS For The Wednesday Launch

The FAA has issued multiple Notice to Airmen (NOTAMS) Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) around Cape Canaveral, Fla., through Wednesday, May 27, 2020. The NOTAMS are in preparation for NASA’s historic manned space flight to the International Space Station aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. This the first launch of astronauts to Earth orbit on an American-built spacecraft from American soil since 2011. The FAA’s role is to ensure the safety of the airspace by prohibiting all aircraft operations within 30 nautical miles of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center during the reported timeframe unless the operation is exempted. There are three types of NOTAMs: airspace, to close the airspace near the launch; flow, to provide route guidance to aviation operators; and security, to implement security measures for aircraft and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the area.
